Have you ever stayed a month or longer in an RV park in one stretch?

What’s the longest you’ve ever stayed at one RV park without moving? A week? Two? A month? Six months? A year? We’re curious to know what percentage of you have stayed at the same RV park for at least one month without moving.

Can you remember a time you did this? Perhaps this is what you always do, or perhaps you never have stayed anywhere for a month, but might in the future.

Please tell us by voting in the poll below. Be patient, it may take a moment or two to load.

Last January we spent the month at the KOA in Apopa, FL. Now full timers we will be at the same campground for January and February. This summer we will be work camping in Utah for 5 months.

I lived in my RV off the grid for 5 years. Most RV parks don’t allow RVs over 10 years old.

After retiring, we decided to full-time and become volunteers for 6 mos each year as Visitor Center or Campground Hosts. Our assignments to date have been 3 months each in National Battlefields, National Wildlife Reserves, Corps of Engineers, National Fish Hatcheries and State Parks.

A great way to ‘pay back’ for all the great times we RVd in those facilities during our careers and were assisted by volunteers back then!

Yes, in Key West of all places. 6 weeks total. At the 4 week point, I was surprised to find I was bored out of my mind. Nice people, the same beautiful day over and over at a gorgeous beach park…. We’re not bar hoppers so the nightlife wasn’t a big deal. Great place. I just discovered I’m not happy hanging in one place for long, so it was a good learning experience.

Twice…so far. Once last spring during the first “stay at home” order then (on a whim) we took a work camper job at a park in West Yellowstone. Now doing a house sitting gig that has full hookups. So that will make three. Waiting to see what the spring will bring to finalize plans.

I spend May thru September in the UP of MI, Cedarville, every summer. We bought two lots in a condo RV park nine years ago so it is inexpensive now.

Yes, because monthly rates are the least expensive. And a month is usually long enough to thoroughly explore an area. But we winter in AZ for 5 months at a time as where else can you winter as comfortably.

We stayed at different ones a few times until we moved to one full-time this year.

Since we own an rv lot at Pacific Shores in Newport Oregon, we typically stay there from mid May to the first of Oct……. every year.

When we full timed and traveled the country we would usually stay three to five weeks at each major destination, providing us time to explore the area. That would include making over night trips in the toad to extend our discoveries. On one seven month coast to coast trip we put more exploring miles on the toad than miles on the motorcoach.

For us it’s just been a week or so. The only time it’s parked in the same place for more than a month is after it’s been winterized.

As full timers we stay a month at a time in one place. We follow the weather. The only ice I want to see is in my freezer next to my Blue Bell ice cream. A month gives us time to settle in and relax. Then my husband Al gets his driving fix moving to our next campground.

As workampers, we are in campgrounds from four to six months. In the time between jobs, as we travel about the country, we have stayed in a campground for a week a couple of times when we have been in an area where there were a lot of things we wanted to see.

Full disclosure, we have a permanent site in a RV Resort and have been there 12 years and never moved. But when traveling the country we usually stay no more than one week and that is for places like Yellowstone or as a base camp in New England.

We’re five months in an RV park in Houston, TX right now, and looking at possibly two more. We’re here for a medical condition and thank our lucky stars that we have our trailer and can do this. It would be almost cost prohibitive any other way.

Other than this ‘adventure’, we rarely stay in RV parks . . .

Yes. I would travel in the warm 6 months, fly back to San Diego when needed from where ever, work.and spent 2 winters in an RV park just south of SD, and worked all winter. It was a nice park but sadly is no longer there. I was lucky to be able to do so. I’m now retired and live in a nice wooded area with wildlife in my yard. I no longer RV, but am in exactly the kind of place I liked to camp in. I am still enjoying my RV newsletter.
